ABOUT THE LYLAS
Sisters Jaime, Tiara, Tahiti and Presley Hernandez known as The LYLAS (acronym for “love you like a sister”), are an American female singing group looking to make a lasting name for themselves in the music industry. Growing up in Honolulu, Hawaii, The LYLAS were surrounded by an overwhelming amount of support and musical influences. Their father, an avid Elvis Presley fan, had a show in Hawaii where their brother Peter Hernandez, known to most as superstar sensation Bruno Mars, often participated as an Elvis impersonator. While the passion for music always lived within the sisters, the idea of starting a group didn’t happen until about two years ago. The ladies were working with 4mamaearth(founded by Jaime), an organization that utilizes the power of art, music, and popular culture to make a change for the better locally and globally, on creating a song for orphanages in the Philippines.
They met up in the studio to record the bridge of the song and were quickly reminded of something that they probably knew their whole lives – they could sing. In January,The LYLAS released their first single, Come Back, and a video for the song soon followed. Come Back was extremely well received by the critics,giving the sisters the drive and determination to stay in the studio and finish their full length album which is expected to be released later this year. The LYLAS will take their foray into the world of television as their docu-series appropriately titled The LYLAS, is set to premiere on WE tv this November. The series will chronicle the sisters as they journey to Los Angeles to follow in their brother’s musical footsteps and strive to stay true to themselves and their Hawaiian roots. Cameras followed them as they lived and worked together on their debut album all while coping with the change in their dynamic relationship and individual lives.
